Little Cherub 20mm Buttons

Lovely wooden buttons I have specially made to finish off Chunky and Aran Knits.

They come in packs of ten (10) with the words "Little Cherub" and are 20mm diameter.

Exclusive to this page. For bulk orders, please email me.

FREDDIE is a comprehensive cable style of Jacket with matching Hat.  The twist stitch starts at the rib and carries on through the body of the Jacket including the back.  The texture of the cable ensures warmth and interest and is completed over an 18 row repeat.  The cable is very straightforward despite the amount of detail and will suit both boys and girls. FREDDIE comes in chest size 18″ – 24″ and completes larger as it is a jacket.  It really is a beauty like the little man it is named after.

Bootees and mittens are available as a free download on website.

Knitted on straight needles.

I am reluctant to state ages for sizes and those suggested on pattern are for guidance only – as children get older, best to go by chest size then measure neck to where you wish it to end and adjust accordingly.

Approx Age Up to 6m, 6-12m 1-2yrs, 2-3yrs approx.

FREDDIE is a detailed set of Jacket and matching Hat.

My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Jacket and Cardigan has instructions to fit 18″ to 24″ chest.  Always measure the child prior to starting your project as all children are different.

Wool & yarn recommendation…

I often get asked which wool I use and who my yarn supplier is!  For this knit I have used Stylecraft Special Aran which I selected for its softness, it is very gentle on a baby’s skin.  There are over 88 different shades available through LoveCrafts, who are my preferred yarn and wool supplier.  (Spend over £25 to get free P&P and sign up their newsletter for 15% off your first order!)… I would also recommend Paintbox Aran for this pattern.

    Another lovely knit from Donna. Beautiful detail on the rib and neckband. I would suggest that this would be a pattern for a slightly more experienced knitter.

    Absolutely love this pattern. Just knit the smallest and largest size for 2 brothers. The cable pattern enhanced the cardigans perfectly
